FAQ's

Q: How much does it cost?
A: All pottery in the studio is individually priced, ranging from coasters at £2.50 up to Garden Gnomes and Vases at £18-20. The majority of items are around £6-£10 each so there is a broad selection to suit all budgets. The only additional charge is a £2.50 stdio fee per person, which covers the paint glaze and firing costs.

Q: How long does it take?
A: It takes as little or as long as you like. Most sessons take around an hour but it is entirely up to the individal. Following the session the pottery remains in the studio to be glazed and fired and will be ready for collection within 5 - 7 days.

Q: When and how do I pay?
A: Payment is made at the end of the session and can be by cash or debit / visa card.

Q: Once fired, is the pottery suitable for the dishwasher or microwave?
A: The pottery is earthenware and has a dinnerware safe glaze. However, as with any handmade ceramic product, I would advise against using in a microwave or dishwaher if possible as imperfections can occure in time.
